The Flames are 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 19-7 in their last 26 vs. Western Conference. The Ducks are 62-30 in their last 92 vs. Western Conference and 19-7 in their last 26 overall. The Flames are 2-27-3 in the last 32 meetings in Anaheim and 5-12 in the last 17 meetings overall.
The Flames have won only twice in thier last 32 games in Anaheim. I'm no genius or anything but that's not good. With that strong of a trend, I suggest backing the Ducks here, but take the spread to give your wager more value.
